  • It was really really noisy in there and they didn't even have the room available, don't stay here!!!!! Go to the Free Hand Hostel or HI Hostel they're better,Bed and Drinks is good too, believe me, I've stayed in almost every hostel here in Miami and this one is a poor choice!

  • Everything was perfect until we found cockroaches... a lot of them! they were up in the beds, on the floor inside the bathroom. We advertise the staff but the nest was in the big outlet and they couldn't do anything... So I was sharing the room with people and cockroaches. Is a very good hostel, but why everything must be old? like the bathroom? Is a busy hostel... why they just don´t renew it?

  • The airconditioning is too weak for cooling down the whole room. When they are well booked the put another bed in your room (for 5 people) and thus there is almost no space for your luggage. For a short stay at the beach it is ok, but not for a longer time.

  • need to make sure air conditioning units are in optimum condition. it gets very hot both in the rooms and dining area. also, incidental charges upon arrival (i.e., being charged extra for using a credit/debit card and the key deposit) need to be posted on the website.

  • Arrive at the hostel in South Beach and are told that, by the way, there are 8 different locations within Miami and we have been allocated a location $10 taxi fee drive on the opposite side of the island. New accommodation has 1. No security 2. Wifi not working 3 basin dislodged from the wall 4. Light switches dont work. 5. No transport back to South Beach (which is where one actually buys the accommodation on your website). I never expect miracles from Hostels, but this was a bit of a con.

  • I went down to Miami for Memorial Day weekend and I have to say it was just great! The location is awesome, the beach is just 2 streets away! The food was ok, definitely acceptable for the price. And the most awesome people around, everyone was friendly and very helpful at any time. I can just recommend this hostel to everyone who want to have a good time!

  • We had a really great time at the International Hostel! The parties every night were great - and are an incredible deal. Paid around 20-25 for usually free pre-gaming alcohol, party bus ride to a club, and a VIP entrance. Usually they said entrance to the clubs would cost up to $80 cover! They take you to famous clubs but the drinks there are *very* expensive! The hostel itself was nice, the rooms appear to be old hotel rooms with private baths for each 6-bed room. Very close to the beach!
